3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good! 24 Sep 2008
Format:DVD
This film was to be the last made featuring the comedy duo of Pryor and Wilder and its not bad.

Its by no means as good as Stir Crazy, few are, but I found it on par with See no Evil and condidering the condition of Pryor at the time,MS, he pulled out a good performance.

The film actualy started out a bit poor and predictable but it did get better and funnier as it went along. One scene had Pryor at the beginning pretending to be a great street saxophanist,using a tape recorder, which is fairly corny, however it makes up for it later when Pryor is at a gig and a man who saw him playing earlier in the street scene is on stage playing guitar (looks VERY much like Andy Summers from the Police).
He announces Pryor as one the GREAT saxaphone players in the world and you can guess the rest, VERY funny scene.

Wilder's response to being recognised as someone else is great comedy too, had me in stitches, you'd really believe he actually new these people!

It may have done poorly at the box office but its certainly not that bad and is a worthy addition to anyones comedy collection!

3 and a half stars in my book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Final bow for the Pryor/Wilder Partnership 9 Oct 2010
Format:DVD
Another You is a somewhat confused film which didn't quite know when to be a drama or a comedy - and falling between both genres, it suffers somewhat.

It lacks the big laughs of any of the previous collaborations between Pryor and Wilder - but there are some to be had.

In this film, Pryor plays a streetwise Hollywood con man named Eddie Dash who, as part of his probation deal has to look after a man named George (Wilder). What Eddie knows is that George has spent time in a mental institution. What he isn't prepared for is that the man is a congenital liar that makes him look like a babe in the hood - and neither of them know that George is a lynchpin for a scam himself!

There are fine performances from Pryor and Wilder here - though Richard is clearly ill with MS, he is a true professional and of course, gets the biggest laughs thanks to his coarse brand of humour and fast talk.

Wilder plays the usual romantic lead - though this one is more twisted than most of his characters of his later career - he allows himself to gain a touch of the mania that he showed in classics like Young Frankenstein here, but doesn't truly get into the part as you'd expect.

Mercedes Ruehl is superb as the frosty love interest Elaine, and there are some good performances from the support cast overall, with one actor doing very credible impersonations of Peter Falk and William Shatner in the early asylum scenes.

Cameos from Vanessa Williams and Police guitarist Andy Summers add to the fun - but without Pryor and Wilder in the lead roles, this film would be eminently forgettable.

A mixed bag, but give it a try - you might like it.

Pryor also gives us an extra treat as well with a unique voiceover for the Tri Star pegasus as the titles roll in.

Bless him.

2.0 out of 5 stars The bitter end for Wilder and Pryor 29 April 2012
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Starting out looking like one of those truly excruciating hard-to-believe trainwrecks that occasionally somehow escapes from a major studio, Another You does manage to somehow rise above it's nightmarishly bad opening to become a tolerable timewaster if you're in an extremely undemanding mood and aren't scared off by the gratuitous yodelling, but it's no surprise it turned out to be a career killer of a movie that brought not only Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor's screen partnership to an end but Wilder's entire movie career as well. But it's Pryor who cuts the most pitiful figure. Clearly a seriously ill man and at times barely able to even walk (it was rumoured that in some scenes he stood on a trolley that was pulled along by grips to fake motion, and in a few shots you can believe it), his delivery at times awkward, it actually seems cruel to point a camera at him in his condition in his early scenes. On one level you could argue that it was courageous of him to finish the film, but on another it seems heartless for the studio to have put him through it and released the result.

Thankfully his halting verbal delivery does improve slightly as the film goes on (even more thankfully Wilder drops his idiotic and unfunny manchild act once the plot kicks in), and there are echoes of his old panache from time to time, but even without his painfully visible ailment, this would have been a stinker. At one point in a mental hospital full of broadly caricatured patients (including Michael J. Pollard, who wisely took his name off the credits) a film producer wanders by repeatedly muttering "I don't understand it, they said the dailies were great" to himself, but there's no way even Mary Poppins could have seen a bright side to this one during shooting.
